Innovation on the rise: Africa and Russia
In 2017, Innotribe will return to Africa for the third consecutive year. The warm welcome from the community and enthusiasm from startups have been essential in building solid foundations for the programme in the region. Once again, Innotribe will partner with SWIFT’s African Regional Conference (ARC), organised from 16-18 May 2017 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. The Startup Challenge will take place on Wednesday 17 May in the afternoon.
Applications to the event in Abidjan are closed. Read the Press Release about the 10 companies selected for the showcase.
For the first time, Innotribe will also bring the Startup Challenge to Russia. The local innovation ecosystem already includes some notable players and has a great potential to further develop a stimulating environment for FinTech startups, not only in Russia but also in the neighbouring CIS countries. Innotribe will partner with the ROSSWIFT (Russian National SWIFT Member and User Group), namely including the Bank of Russia, the National Settlement Depository, Sberbank, and Alfa-Bank. The Innotribe Startup Challenge showcase will be organised during the International Financial Congress (IFC), Russia’s largest international financial forum hosted by the Bank of Russia, taking place from 12-14 July 2017 in St. Petersburg.

Applications to the event in St. Petersburg are now closed.
